Ian in Lacrosse
Greetings from the Palouse! My name is Ian, and I live in Lacrosse. That's about 2 hours south of deer park, and an hour north of pullman. I'll be attending the beginner class tomorrow morning, and until then I've been reading the backyard beekeeper and watching youtube videos.
I just got some of my equipment in the mail today, and am excited to try them out. Got my hive tool, smoker, veil, bee brush, frame grabber and an uncapping fork.
When the bees finally arrive, I'll be installing two packages. One Italian and one carniolan. I figure having two hives, and two separate bee breeds would be a great way to start and learn about bee and hive differences.
Looking forward to tomorrows class!
It's great that you can access this forum system. You will have questions through the beekeeping season so this forum would be a good place where you can post your questions.
We will see you tomorrow!
